Bad link, but I assume that it's in reference to the complete rumors that he was severely inhibited at dinner only 2 hours before his death. I know it seems like it's possible, and I know the media is eating up this plot line. However, it is my opinion that there is no sense is speculating about his BAC when there is a definitive toxicology report scheduled to be completed in the near future.

It does nothing but rake mud at the guy, and what if turned out to be wrong?

Here is the new story. The Post-Dispatch took down the other one when new information - presumably the witnesses they interviewed - surfaced, and they replaced it with this story:

Let's say this kid was driving drunk. It's dumb, it's illegal and had he been caught I would support prosecuting him to the fullest extent.

But the thing is, now he's dead. If drinking played a role in that, it doesn't lessen the tragic nature of his death for me. It's still a waste, it's still sad.

thats about how i feel.

this also sums it up pretty good.

it's beginning to look as if hancock was driving drunk. should that prove to be the case, there will need to be a reckoning; but that, too, should wait until the man has been buried. there is no hurry to do anything right now --- to play good baseball, to catch the brewers, or to proclaim the moral of the story. just get through the day.

It's official. He was completely drunk (0.157 BAC) and not wearing a seat belt. However, that wouldn't have saved him. The flat-bed tow truck he ran into basically took his head off, which brings up one of my favorite pet peeves. Why are so many vehicles allowed to be constructed in such deadly designs? Flat-bed tow trucks, those tall delivery vans, even some school buses... A girl from my high school was killed when she rear-ended a school bus at 15 mph. It basically took her head off.

Story
Police Chief Joe Mokwa said 8.55 grams of marijuana were found in Hancock's car.

just wondering, is marijuana prevalent among major leaguers or st. louis ball players? i remember when darryl kile passed away they found marijuana in his hotel room also. since hancock was already drunk, if he had smoked bud on top of that that would have made things really bad, in terms of driving. also, 8.55 grams of bud is quite a bit of bud and i'm guessing ball players don't smoke the cheap stress so that's a large amount of chronic to carry around. weird how nobody talks about the marijuana.
